Astroman- I'm glad your heart and breathing issues have subsided. This gives me some hope.
Girlie- that's what my doctor recently labeled my issues as (POTS). I constantly research what else could be causing it because I have treated lyme bart and bab. My heart feels much better than it did 2-3 years ago but I'm not normal yet. Lately I've been thinking parasites? IDK it's just frustrating.
Can you describe your POTS symptoms?
I think it's possible that you have treated the infections....but the healing has to happen. The POTS is from autonomic nervous system dysfunction. As you know, nerves can take a long time to heal.
I also have nerve issues in the left shoulder blade/arm/hand area...some pain.
When I saw Dr. J in March...I asked him (crossing my fingers) did he think that symptom could still resolve? (It's one of my last ones....and it was my first symptom).
He said he felt confident it would.
I hope he's right....I am trying very hard to be patient.....
I've had so many symptoms resolve in the past several years...you'd think I'd be happy to have just a few left, right?
But, no...they're bad enough that they disrupt my life.....and on a good day it's like I'm waiting for them to flare. I worry that this is "it". It's going to be what I'm left with forever.
I also wonder if my babesia treatment was cut short. I do have a some sweating when I wake in the morning....and also in the evening - between 9 and 11 p.m. sometimes the backs of my hands sweat...(weird, I know).
Is it from babesia...or is it part of my ANS dysfunction.
